Angela and Kevin Prepare for the End of <I>The Office</i>

Tomorrow night is the ninth season premiere of The Office, and also marks the beginning of show's final season. After years of anchoring NBC's Thursday night comedy lineup, the show will finish its plotlines, and according to two cast members, give the audience some surprises. Angela Kinsey, who, of course, plays Angela Martin, and Brian Baumgartner, the man behind the goofy Kevin Malone, spoke with us about what's ahead this season and what they're not quite ready to leave behind.

Charlie’s Angels: Fall’s Most Mediocre New Drama

<I>Charlie’s Angels</I>: Fall’s Most Mediocre New Drama

ABC's new Charlie's Angels isn't the worst remake that we've ever seen (we're still leaning towards Knight Rider for that dishonor), it's not exactly what you'd call Emmy-bait (though it isn't trying to be), it doesn't have the most attractive cast on TV (Vampire Diaries probably wins that one) and it definitely doesn't have the most kick-ass girl action scenes (we tip our hat to Nikita ), but with all that said, it's not the worst show to premiere this fall. It isn't even that bad when all is said and done. It's just that it falls in the unfortunate position of being average -- not great, not appallingly awful, just there. And unless it garners some Big Bang Theory-style ratings, it probably won't be there for long.

Murder, He Wrote: The Case of Castle v. Angela Lansbury

Murder, He Wrote: The Case of <i>Castle</i> v. Angela Lansbury

When we heard the pitch for Nathan Fillion's new TV show Castle -- mystery writer helps police solve crimes -- we immediately thought of the long-running Angela Lansbury series Murder, She Wrote, which had a similar premise. Hell, even Fillion himself makes the comparison, although ABC apparently told him not to, probably because it makes it sound like a show for 80-year-olds. We've seen a couple episodes of the show by now, and while it probably has more in common with current series like Bones and The Mentalist, there are certainly a few similarities between Castle and Murder She Wrote. We decided to look at just the facts, ma'am, on a case-by-case basis and see if the comparison is justified.

<i>The Office</i>: Andy & Angela Open Up

Of the two relationships currently entering crisis territory on The Office, only one threatens to be a real barn-burner... literally. Andy and Angela's impending nuptials at Schrute Farm may end in fire if Andy ever finds out about Angela's relationship with Dwight, so we talked to Ed Helms and Angela Kinsey, who play the not-so-happy couple, about what's going through their heads, and the heads of their characters.

Touched by a Charlie’s Angel

Touched by a <i>Charlie’s Angel</i>

Tanya Roberts is probably known best for her latest role, as Donna's hot mom Midge on That '70s Show, but before that she was a vixen on the big and small screens. Roberts got her big break playing Julie Rogers, one of the last Charlie's Angels, on the show's fifth season, and went on to be a Bond Girl in Live and Let Die and no less than Sheena, Queen of the Jungle. We managed to finagle a few minutes with her at Tuesday's surreal Best Buy event, and found out that she is criminally not acting in anything right now. Scoop her up, people -- she's available! And she's game for almost anything, as she explained to us...

New Girl: The Do’s and Don’ts of Birthday Surprises

<i>New Girl</i>: The Do’s and Don’ts of Birthday Surprises

Let's ignore, for a moment, that the logistics of Nick's impromptu birthday surprise at the movie theater are pretty impossible and live in the fantasy, shall we? It was sweet and ridiculously romantic and set our already-unrealistic expectations for love even higher than most sitcoms. New Girl, when it's great, is a top-notch romantic comedy and "Birthday" was no exception. (Much like Season 2, it looks like Season 3 is picking up steam in the second half.) Sure, they've turned Jake Johnson's Nick Miller from a relatable slacker into a dreamboat boyfriend, while Zooey Deschanel's Jess has regressed to a cliché of herself. In fact, at one point in the episode she wishes she could be a cool girl in the movies "who wears men's shirts and sneakers," which sounds a whole lot like Deschanel's character in (500) Days of Summer. Still, if New Girl is destined to be a romantic comedy instead of an ensemble sitcom, it's doing a good job of it -- when the show is clicking, it is both very romantic and very funny. Here are the do's and don'ts of birthday surprises from "Birthday":

Enlisted: A Show That Deserves Better Than Its Dead Zone Time Slot

<i>Enlisted</i>: A Show That Deserves Better Than Its Dead Zone Time Slot

It's almost too ironic that Fox's new comedy Enlisted (you know, the one you've seen roughly 79,282,084 commercials for) is about being outstanding in your field and getting stuck in a position that's beneath you. Because that's exactly what Fox has done to this very funny and heartwarming series by sticking it in the dead zone time slot that is 9:30 PM on a Friday. (It's also ironic that the title Enlisted looks a whole lot like the title Enlightened, another show that never got a fair shake.)
